Sierra Take a Break Pinball
"Ever since I was a young boy..." Those words still ring true today for many of us computer gamers and yet there has been a kind of dearth for good pinball games on the PC. All the way back into the mid 80's, EA produced the Pinball Construction Set which, while successful, never really addressed the needs of just pure players. I don't really want to design tables, I just want to play the silver ball. In 1993 Sierra really got the genre on the right track with their "Take-A-Break: Pinball" game.
Pinball from Dynamix offers some very interesting features while maintaining the real enjoyment of playing the game. Graphically, it's very nice for the era with full animated backglasses, good digital sound effects, and a choice of 5 different tabletops. You can choose which thematic game you want to play from Leisure Suit Larry, Willie Beamish, King's Quest, Nova 9, or Space Quest. Each different game has different and unique playing fields, strategies and obstacles that you encounter, so the replay value is quite high.
